|The Friends of the Mission Viejo Library and A Whale of a Tale Bookshoppe are joining forces and bringing Mac Barnett and Jory John, two amazingly popular and funny children’s authors, to present their new release The Terrible Two illustrated by Kevin Cornell. This hilarious dynamic duo will entertain audiences of all ages.
Mac Barnett is a New York Times bestselling author of many books for children including Extra Yarn, which won a Caldecott Honor and the Boston Globe–Horn Book Award for Excellence in Picture Books. He’s also authored with John Scieszka Battle Bunny, the New York Times-bestselling picture book, as well as Dave and Sam Dig a Hole. For middle graders he’s written the Brixton Brothers series of mystery novels.
Jory John is a writer, editor, and journalist. He is the co-author of the bestselling All My Friends Are Dead and the editor of Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country: Kids’ Letters to President Obama.
Kevin Cornell is the illustrator of many children’s books, including Count the Monkeys and Mustache!, both by Mac Barnett.
The Terrible Two will be available for purchase at the event. Buying books during Writers Present is a great way for the public to support the author programs and keep them free.
